Next time try with
extrusion of an edge and
extrusion of a face
You will get even better result
Seriously, search for tutorials with Blender there are plenty on the web.
Start learning modeling step by step, from simple to complex.
Soon you will get into the rythm of modeling and there is no escape.
I dont get what you mean extrusion of a face, I extrude vertices all over the ship, then I joined them into edges. Edges into faces and faces were extruded, then I switched view and shaped the vertices to fit the other views.
I am not a complete noob, I model weapons, sword and axes all the time.
